subjects completely because this is sort of the provocative headline. new york city mayor bloomberg called hillary clinton and said you should be my successor as mayor. how do you think that conversation went? i think being a mayor of new york city gives you an opportunity to imagine things that are possible but not in real life. i can imagine how hillary clinton would be enticed to take on that smaller stage after her staging as the nation and the world for the last decade. >> jim, i wonder if she was flattered by it or thought to herself, i'm on the world stage here. why would i go and become mayor of new york city? >> i mean, everything i've read about sect clinton suggests that she's looking forward to a break at the end of this year. i don't think running for mayor is very conducive to that. it's not my idea of a relaxing time but i may be wrong. >> people are joking that mayor bloomberg looks tired. it's a big job. but the one thing she's been consistent about, she needs to sleep a little. great to see you. jim, thank you as well. >>> meantime, the u.s. navy is denying iran's claim t

capacity clips. new york city mayor michael bloomberg, who has been an outspoken gun control advocate, will make an announcement on gun violence in just a couple of hours. he's calling on the president to take the lead. >> we've got to really question whether military style weapons with big magazines belongs on the streets of america in this day and age. nobody questions the second amendment's right to bear arms but i don't think the founding fathers had the idea that every man, woman and child could carry an assault weapon, and i think the president, through his leadership, could get a bill like that through congress. but at least he's got to try. >> let's bring in dan gross, president of the brady campaign to prevent gun violence. dan, thanks so much for being with us. as you know, this tragedy has struck so deeply at the hearts of americans but at the same time, the nra is not going to go away so let me ask you a strategic question. how do you maximize your chances of getting some meaningful legislation passed in congress? >> i think it comes down to a simple formula which is make
of what happened. the sheer volume. and frankly the fact that we're so close to new york city and it's become such a media circus out here. but people feel it in their hearts and hollywood feels very, very deeply. and i there's a lot of discussion going on. >> part of that discussion descenting. an executive for one entertainment companies jones said this, there's no way to honestly and intelligently scrape goat anyone when we seek blame for tragedy. demonizing the entertainment industry because of a man man that was disturbed is not the solution." what about that? >> i think we're not going to see less violence in movies and video games because of this. but i think we'll see a difference, actors are going to make personal decisions and say this isn't right for he. i think we'll see warnings in front of movies. but absolutely, most importantly, is this a teachable moment for parents to look at their kids' entertainment. because that's the ultimate place that kids get it in the home. say what video game are you playing. >> there always is this debate. what is the responsibility of the
a plane into new york city with us inside firing away as we go down. as you said, it's chilling. it's eerie. when you hear a quote like that you can no longer deny the connection between these rampage shooters and suicide terrorist ands it seems pretty clear if eric harris had been influenced by islamic fundamentalism he would have wanted to be one of those pilots crashing a plane into the world trade center. >> the other question so many people have, professor, and i don't know if there will be an answer is why that school? he did apparently go there for a brief time, but that was years ago and there are reports that his mother was a teacher there were untrue, why target little kids? >> well, one of the things when you do this comparative analysis between suicide terrorists on the one hand and rampage shooters on the other hand is you can start to learn about both groups more accurately, and what i would say is when you see suicide terrorists they often target random, innocent strangers, even children to get that attention and what i would speculate here is that adam lanza knew tha
, probably 1 to 3 inches in portions of pennsylvania and new york state. it looks like new york city could get an inch, maybe more if we get more of that moisture moving from the south into this area, so mostly it will be lighter amounts that what we say in the adirondacks and the white mountains, but definitely white for new york this time. increasing clouds, winds should remain fairly light. and then into tomorrow, we'll expect to see that no begin to accumulate. we're probably going to see 1 to 3 inch total snowfall. into tomorrow night, we expect to see the snow shower taper off. the lower temperatures getting cold near 28 degrees. it looks lie a chilly new year's each. 33 degrees there by the time we get into the new year. >> it wouldn't be any fun if it wasn't a little cold in times square for new year's eve. >> huddle up, get close to one another. you can't do anything else. >> they'll be huddling all right. thank you very much. >>> the top political stories from the big written to then forget at moments we're also headed for the dairy cliff. seema mody has more. let's start with th
are these cuts and what's the industry saying about it? >> chris, citi said it's cutting 4% of its workforce. investors are thinking this is a the first in a series of steps that will shrink the bank to a more manageable and profitable size. the news not a total shot to the market. >> it also kind of feels, maybe because i live in new york, like there's a starbucks on every corner. sometimes it feels like they're less than a block apart. but i couldn't believe when i saw when was in the works at starbucks. >> just when you thought starbucks might be reaching a saturation point at home, there is room for it to grow domestically and globally. they are planning to increase stores in the u.s. by more than 20%, that's roughly 2,000 new stores in the next five years or so. part of the growth strategy includes a varied product mix, tea and juice. and in china and the asia pacific region, there's plenty of room to grow. starbucks expects china will overtake canada as its second largest market in 2014. >> great to have you. thank you. and forbes is out with a list of the world's most powerful people.
of the murder/suicide of a kansas city chiefs player. >> what i was talking about here, and i'm sorry if that wasn't clear to everybody was a gun culture. i never mentioned the second amendment, i never used the words gun control. people inferred that. now do i believe we need more comprehensive and sensible gun control legislation, yes i do. that doesn't mean repeal the second amendment. >> the controversy comes over a heated debate on the senate floor over gun rights for veterans. gentlemen, good morning. >> good morning. >> john, let me start with you, senator coburn wanted to amend the bill to stop veterans affairs department from putting the names of mentally incompetent veterans into a background check system to prohibit them from owning firearms. let me play that exchange from the senate floor. >> how in the world can we say the people who fight and defend for us through a social worker deemed incompetent to carry a gun? >> if you're a veteran or not, and you have been judged to be mentally infirm, you should not have a gun, and that no amendment, my friend, is absolute. >> so
. this is the earth at night illuminated by city lights across the planet. but there's this new report about whether nasa can maintain its leadership role in space exploration. let me bring informer space shuttle engineer, james oberg. it's been a while. thank you, james. >> hello, chris. >> the council is saying that nasa is at a crossroads and that they have an uncertain future. the funding is flat and getting money from congress seems unlikely. what's your reaction to this report? >> looking at this report and the comments made in it, i'm almost thrown back to the space race days. it's almost like nostalgia when we had a two-way race to a goal and we could design our vehicles just for that goal. that was a tightly focused program. when you look at nasa's program today, it's not nearly as focused. i think that's a good thing, though. because we've gotten to broader areas of capability. so when they refer to some problems that they see at nasa, to me those are problems of not aging but of maturing of the space program. >> as you know, this is a time when we're in a big fight over money and who's go
states, but cities as well. rahm emanuel, guns are a huge issue in chicago, given the recent spike in murders there. >> we touched on this earlier in the hour, that the nra is going to be holding a news conference on friday. they did release a statement yesterday expressing shock and sadness, quote, the nra is prepared to offer meaningful contributions to help make sure this never happens again. i guess the question is what does meaningful contributions mean? is there any indication of that? >> no. the nra is a very close circle of people. we won't be hearing a lot in news leaks about this kind of thing. it is very hard to determine what they mean. in the past, they have not really been -- they haven't been willing to give any wiggle room at all to a lot of their policies. they have been very clear. there is not a lot of gray area in the kinds of things they advocate for. we have no idea what they mean by these contributions on friday. we have no clue that they're going to say. >> we'll have to wait and see. thank you. good to see you. >> thank you. >>> the search for a motive in t
